Bello, Gallardo, Bonequi y García, S.C.’s comprehensive offering across TMT remains at the forefront of the market, particularly at the intersection of telecoms and technology; a case in point being the firm’s advice to Microsoft on its recent market entry as a telecommunications provider and associated regulatory issues. It is the counsel of choice for a host of major new entrants into the Mexican technology sector and has long-term relationships with many leading names in the telecoms and media segments. A recent trend in the latter area has been advisory mandates from social media clients regarding their negotiations with influencers. The practice group is jointly coordinated by four lawyers: Carlos Bello, one of the founding partners of the firm, draws on over 25 years’ experience in the TMT field where he has advised many -if not most- of the sectors’ key players; Carlos Díaz Sobrino whose expertise leans toward the M&A side of the practice, as well as contributing on data privacy matters in these sectors; Hector Guzman, a dedicated data privacy expert; and Jonathan Rangel, who handles e-copyright matters.

Practice head(s):

The team has complete knowledge of the telecommunications sector and an excellent relationship with the IFT and Profeco, in addition to the opportunity to accompany partners and associates in the TMT area.

They are lawyers who really know the laws and regulations of the telecommunications sector and who know the industry from the inside and the eventual risks for their clients, which translates into assertive and timely advice.

We like that the BGBG team of lawyers adapts to the needs of our company and our way of working, but above all to the dynamism that a technology company requires. Compared to other law firms, BGBG is extremely practical and accurate in its advice.

Especially the partner Carlos Díaz Sobrino always has a great attitude and sense of responsibility. We like that he keeps up with developments in legislation and his opinions on a wide variety of topics are very accurate. Compared to other lawyers with whom we have worked, Díaz Sobrino, in addition to being a TMT specialist, knows other matters in depth that make his work outstanding.
